Of course, there are other action cameras on the market – and we look forward as always to trying out the latest releases this winter – but the GoPro continues to reign supreme. Those who’ve done their homework on how to use a GoPro properly have been able to create truly memorable footage.
So dominant is the little cuboid’s share of the market that a large number of companies now sell GoPro-specific accessories that are compatible with its unique case design. They vary wildly in application, ranging from the everyday (poles, battery packs) to the more specialist (timelapse stand, hot shoe mount). All have their uses, and are there to enhance the already formidable power of the GoPro wherever possible.
Whether you’re serious about your footage, or just looking to jazz up your holiday vids, the wealth of accessories out there are well worth a look. Here are a few of the best ones on offer for this coming winter:
